NPower Portable Inverter - 750 Watts
Inverter for a drill
I wanted to run a 3/8 " AC drill from my riding mower in the woods. This unit did the job properly. I have been using it occasionally for about 3 weeks without problem. The unit is ruggedly built and has indicator lights and low voltage sense. If you momentarily have low voltage it disconnects and then as the battery comes up, the inverter automatically reconnects. Nice!
If I needed another, I would buy this unit again.

Not what you think
I had to return this inverter. I was looking for an inverter that I could plug into my vehicle 12vdc outlet, but this inverter requires that it be hooked up directly to the battery! How convenient is that?
I have experience with using inverters in a vehicle for powering external devices like Christmas lights on my vehicle and the product information was not clear that it needed to be connected directly to the battery.

Used this to power my 1/2 HP sump pump when the power fails. Works great!!!! No more floods in the crawl space. Like that. I use a trickle chager to recharge the deep cycle battery and a single pole double throw relay to send 120VAC to the pump when needed. Will handle surges to 1500 watts more than the initial startup current for the sump pump. Great price too!!!!

NPower 750 Watt Power Inverter
I purchased the NPower 750 watt power inverter to use in my business when I set up at arts & crafts shows. My business is Metal Art Xpressions, and I make signs and artwork with a plasma cutter. Some of my pieces are lighted so I need electricity to display the items at shows. I use a regular car battery hooked up to the power inverter, and it provides all my electrical needs for the entirety of my show. I am so glad I made this purchase from Northern Tool!

I purchased this inverter to take on a elk hunting trip, used it once to charge batteries for a GPS, the next day went to use it agin and it wouldn't work at all, the battery it was connected to had a full charge and the unit was used per the instruction manual and the fault indication it gives isn't in the manual

Worked great. Used it to run a crock pot and keep a pot of chili hot in the car while tailgating at a football game.

I used this inverter to power a deep freeze on a recent elk hunting trip to Montana. It did a great job of keeping the freezer working while driving down the road a total of 1800 miles!
One thing to understand with this is that it can't be used with a cigarette lighter adapter, you must use the included battery clips and cables.
I would highly recommend this to anyone!
